Perennial family favorite Winnie the Pooh returns to theaters this Friday in Disney’s new traditionally animated film of the same name. Pooh Bear is back with all of his friends in the 100 Acre Wood, getting into mischief and looking for honey. It’s a very sweet family film that will make a great first theater experience for many children and manage to keep parents engaged without indulging in any double entendre.
Last weekend I sat down with Jim Cummings (Pooh Bear, Tigger) and Tom Kenny (Rabbit) to discuss their roles in the movie. During our interview they told me about Pooh Bear’s honey issues, how one stays in character for 20 years, Rabbit’s closeness to Bill O’Reilly, and Cummings gives us a quick update on Spongebob Squarepants 2 at the end of the interview. Hit the jump to watch.
